Acid Baby Jesus, the rock ‘n’ roll band from Athens, Greece, is back (after an extended hiatus on a “secluded Greek island”) with the Vegetable EP and a new LP due later this year on Slovenly. The quartet recently shared the title track, “Vegetable,” on SoundCloud.

True to its charm, the band delivers an intriguing psychedelic-infused single. The track starts with lyrics, “When I lost my mind, I put down in a hole / I covered it with dirt, it became a vegetable.” It jingles and jangles with enough oomph to get the hips swaying and is strung along by what sounds like a haunted organ. Frankly, it is everything you might expect from a band called Acid Baby Jesus that hails from a land of rebetika music.

In its own words:

ACID BABY JESUS returns unbruised from a dirty rumor or two of their expiration. Slovenly Recordings has clipped nary a coupon and once again presents a tasty plate of our heaviest lysergic recipe. Drenched in a complex dressing of luxurious Mediterranean flavours, this new “Vegetable” single, released in anticipation of their upcoming second entrée, provides just enough nutrition to keep you satisfied, but never full.
